    Hi all.

    I've read a fair few suggestions by TBers about Mel Bay books when people ask for a good source of learning (specifally his percussive/slap method one). Today, whilst browsing the local store I spotted a walking bass jazz book so had a look at it, discovering a number of interesting looking exercises.

    However, I then turned to the pricing area and saw it was marked up at 22.50 (pounds sterling, this PC won't do the pound sign sorry).

    Do any of you think it's 'worth' that price compared with others in the same feild that tend to be on the 10 (pound sterling) range?
